Digital voice recorders are devices that let you record voice memos, interviews, lectures, and more. They're also perfect for recording your kids' voices, whether you're recording them for a project or you just want to hear them again.

In the Different Guide , we test digital voice recorders for recording quality, playback quality, ease of use, and specs. Our testers evaluate recording quality by listening to playback and comparing to the recording. We also look at ease of use, which includes how easy it is to set up, use, and troubleshoot. We also test digital voice recorders for specifications, such as battery life, record length, and playback speed.

Our picks for the best digital voice recorders are based on our testing and knowledge of this category for reviewing specifications and documentation for 2022. That said, these are the best digital voice recorders you can buy right now:
